Following our return to Hermanus from a very successful 5 week birding trip, Gillian and Andrew asked us to join them for a picnic and walk along the Palmiet river in the Kogelberg on Sunday. It was a beautiful, if cool day and we really enjoyed seeing the river running strongly after the rains of the previous two days.
Our picnic was wonderful – if excessive. We seemed to have too many good things to eat and some chilled wine washed it all down well! We returned to our cars, well satisfied after ten vigorous kilometres. The beauty of the mountains and valley is something that one cannot easily forget and we will return often to this lovely area.
